April Students of the Month at EHS

The Effingham High School Student of the Month program began eight years ago to honor a group of students each month for each curricular area at Effingham High School. The faculty members in each department observe their students each month to make their selection. While grades are an important part of this selection, they are not the sole determination. Students are also evaluated on their sense of classroom citizenship, helpful nature to others, and whether they are giving their best effort , A or not.

A Positive Difference
Mrs. Miller’s freshman Honor’s students completed personal narratives showcasing how they – alone – can make a positive difference in the school or the Effingham community. Several artifacts, such as posters, iMovies, and public service announcements, were created on a wide variety of topics, including collecting blankets and coats for FISH, volunteering at the Effingham Humane Society, playing music or singing at nursing homes, along with raising awareness of the Start Seeing Motorcycles campaign. Mrs. Miller has challenged the students to educate their peers and community members about their “positive difference.” Watch out, Effingham County! Freshman students may soon be “out and about” making a positive difference by asking to present an idea to you, asking for permission to hang a poster at your business, and/or dropping off donations to your business.

Student Council Sponsors Red Out Game

The Effingham High School Student Council recently sponsored a Red Out Game during the boys varsity basketball game on February 20th.   Students and fans were able to purchase Red Out t-shirts.  Basketballs autographed by the boys and girls varsity basketball teams were raffled off.  Chad Thompson won the boys team basketball, and Phil Webster won the girls team basketball.  A Miracle Minute was held during the game, where student council members raced through the stands to collect monetary donations.  And a half-court hoop shoot contest was held during half time of the varsity game.  All proceeds from these activities have been donated to the American Heart Association to help in the fight against heart disease.  Pictured are Student Council members Avery Braunecker, Claire Niebrugge, and Shayna Phillips presenting a $1000 check to American Heart Association representative Amy McKuhen.
